(Pocket-lint) - Photoshop is the gift that keeps on giving and when Redditors get their hands on an already hilarious image, you can be sure things can only get better. 

There's a whole subreddit dedicated to Photoshop Battles and each year, those passionate Redditors hunt down the very best and hand out awards for the spectacular creations crafted for each category.

We've taken a look to find some of the most amusing to share for your enjoyment. Join us on a journey of hilarity and Photoshop brilliance.

Oversized phones

We've all been there, making mistakes while shopping online. Here this chap had bought a table that looked like a phone rather than an actual iPhone. 

The Reddit Photoshoppers have given him something that would be far more durable for his coffee cups.

Honey I shrunk the kids

When a small pooch came face to face with a tiny crab, this wonderful image came about. The resulting Photoshop Battle entry was just perfect. It's been a while since Honey I Shrunk the Kids. Maybe it's time for a reboot?

Screaming Lama

Who is more shocked? The tourist or the loudly screaming Lama? This startled Lama fits perfectly into famous expressionist oil painting The Scream. Certainly adds a lot more character to the picture anyway.

Daddy face swap

We love the original photo of this dad carrying his young infant inside his top, but the internet made it even better with a quick face swap. We also thoroughly enjoyed this version where the baby's head was Photoshopped onto passers-by as well.

This rescued Sloth

This gloriously and majestic sloth looks far more fabulous and at home on the ice rink than he does in the hands of his rescuers. We certainly expect a high score from the figure skating judges for this one if nothing else.

A police dog and their sidekick

A police dog is captured on camera in a room full of confiscated drugs. The image was edited several times in the Photoshop Battles subreddit, but our favourite is almost certainly this one of cartoon character Shaggy Rogers making an appearance.

The rice wave

When a photo of a man making a rice wave hit the web it resulted in a Photoshop battle of epic proportions.

Alas, the original photo was eventually revealed to be a fake, as the rice wave was actually shown to be a product for sale in a fake food shop in Tokoyo. That didn't detract from how awesome the whole thing was though, nor how creative Photoshoppers can be.

Googly eyes

This cat's eyes are already fairly cute and awesome, but the addition of some googly eyes only improves things even more.

The MGM lion

The image on the left did the rounds on the web claiming that this is how the MGM intro was created, with a poor lion strapped down. Of course, the truth is less sinister and the original image actually relates to a heart-warming story about a lion being given pioneering brain surgery to save his life

Still, there's no denying it's an amusing Photoshopping, if a little tongue in cheek. We're desperately trying to avoid making jokes about a lion having a cat scan.

Matching outfits

Well, this is embarrassing, Aaron Paul has apparently turned up at a fashion show wearing the same outfit as the model. Someone is going to have to go home and change.

Cheerful dog and his owner

When the President of Finland was captured holding his cheerful pooch, Redditors saw an opportunity to craft more magnificence with the help of Rowan Atkinson. Another classic.

A bear giving chase

Another fake photo, showing a cyclist apparently going good guns in a desperate attempt to flee from a bear that was chasing him down the road.

The original image just showed a bear pelting it down a road in Yellowstone Park. That image was fairly amazing by itself, but was certainly improved with a dash of peril.

Einstein on a bike

This photo popped up on the web a few years back and quickly went viral. It purported to show Albert Einstein happily riding a bicycle while an atomic explosion is happening off in the background.

Of course, this image was the work of some clever Photoshopper and shown to be fake, but we love the humour of it.

German Shepherd on ice

Redditor jskoker took this already excellent photo of a German Shepherd standing on ice and transformed it.

By simply, yet expertly adding a likeness of Jesus and some ripples, he's given the impression of the son of God taking his dog for a walk over the water's surface.

Trump trying to close his pen

US President Donald Trump has certainly been the subject of many a meme over the years. His images are also often perfect candidates for a good Photoshopping.

This photo of him putting the lid back on his pen is a perfect example. Amazing what a joy a couple of dinosaurs can bring.

This baddass Hawk

As far as feathered creatures go, the Hawk is already pretty mean. But add in a bit of bling and some fresh kicks and suddenly he fits right in with 80s rap group N.W.A. This is not a bird you want to mess with.

Just a minute of your time

Unexpected guests showing up at your door peddling their wares or wanting to talk to you about their religion are not what you want to open the door to.

A grizzly bear is probably an even less welcome sight. But what if we lived in a world where grizzly bears wanted to talk to you about the word of the Lord? Would you be more or less likely to let them in?

Donald Trump in a bathrobe

A young Donald Trump lays seductively spread across a flowery pink bedspread.

With a little Photoshop magic, we now see him in the reflection of Russian President Vladimir Putin's sunglasses.

This dog-friendly gate

Beware of the dogs. SkulkiBones took this already brilliant image of two dog snouts poking through a garden gate and Photoshopped it over the faces of Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari from crime flick 30 Minutes or Less. Imagine a world plagued by canine bank robbers.

The sweet escape

Shuttle launches are already fairly incredible - the idea of a massive rocket being shot up through the atmosphere never ceases to amaze.

But one Photoshopper took an already brilliant view of a shuttle and merged it with another photo to show the shuttle coming through the clouds instead. Certainly more glorious and a nice piece of editing too.

The French President celebrating

During the World Cup, the President of France was captured on camera celebrating his team's victory.

Clever bods on Reddit quickly took to some Photoshop editing. One image saw Emmanuel Macron replacing Napoleon from the famous oil painting of the General riding on horseback through the alps.

A magnificent kingfisher

This fantastic image shows the moment a kingfisher dove down into superbly still waters in search of something to snack on. Photoshop masters turned it into something more hilarious - an image of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un watching a test of his country's latest missile system. We also enjoyed this slightly more dangerous edit showing the kingfisher diving into a shark's mouth.

Their expressions says it all

When you're forced to get along with someone you really don't like and act in a professional manner despite your feelings it can be tough.

It's nice to see even Presidents struggle with this issue. Trump and Obama are forced into an uncomfortable proximity that's actually as believable as it is hilarious.

The Princess Leia frog

This frog is magnificent, sitting there happily with two snails on his head as if that's perfectly normal behaviour.

When Redditors picked up on the fact that the frog resembled Princess Leia from Star Wars, one Photoshop master took to work to make the transformation happen.

Cat melting on a sofa

Cats are marvellous and these wonderful creatures have been the subject of much hilarity on the web. This cat is so chilled it appears to almost be melting off the sofa. 

Some clever editing inserts his form into the famous painting by Salvador Dali known as "The Persistence of Memory" where he melts along with the clocks in this dream-like world.

Capybara with some squirrel monkeys

The Capybara is known to be the largest living rodent in the world, in this original image this one is getting some relaxing attention from some adorable squirrel monkeys.

One Redditor reimagined the monkeys as a racing pit crew seeing to the Capybara's every need.
